Triangle African American Theater Preview

When: Sun., Jan. 14, 7 p.m. 2018

When producing arts groups are strapped for time or resources, ideas that are clearly good can go unrealized indefinitely. Case in point: the region's first major African-American theater showcase was staged just last year, when Triangle Friends of African American Arts convened a standing-room-only evening of excerpts from the upcoming season of plays and musicals. Via Raleigh Little Theatre, TFAAA founder Sherri Holmes returns with a second annual sampler of previews from nine productions we'll see this spring and summer, from a revival of Ain't Misbehavin' at North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre and Verdi's Rigoletto at N.C. Opera to the world premiere of playwright-performer Mike Wiley's collaboration with songwriter Laurelyn Dossett, Leaving Eden, at PlayMakers Repertory Company. The Black on Black Project's Mike Williams hosts an evening of dramatic readings, songs, and scenes. —Byron Woods
